Inspirations: Sword-and-Planet, Pulpy Pulp of the 20's and 30's, Doc Savage, Burroughs's Martian Chronicles (and Tarzan too), Sci-Fi of the 30's-50's (particularly as it pertained to Venus, the jungle-strewn, carboniferous, swampy planet), FLASH GORDON(!), Blackstar, Ancient Aliens, Stargate, Marvel's Inhumans and Terrigen Mists, M.A.R. Barker's Tekumel, HPL, Steampunk, Verne, Wells,...

System: we'll use D6, though its all about the role-playing.

Next: Let's make characters! We could use an earthling that ends up in a loin-cloth and is called by an abbreviated, barbaric-sounding, name.

Let's do Priest. Strange clergies, odd preachers, Richelieus, Savonarolas.... There's a lot of room for priests, so let's see some.

Splatbook 112 - In The City!

We’re going out beyond the neon lights in this episode! Join DM’s Glen, Cory, Fulongamer and Brian as they open a five-episode arc dealing with city adventuring! After answering a round of emails, the guys go out on the town. First they cover some classes and kits that are best suited for a city campaign, Then they start a five-part segment regarding city building, and wrap things up with a discussion on spells and their effects in cities and towns.

A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms.

Game of Thrones light. Great little yarn about a hedge knight and his bald little squire (who may be more than he seems). For those that think the GoT world is too 1. Much 2. Gory 3. Sordid 4. Nasty 5. Complex, you may like this book! No world saving, no incest, no dragons, etc

Just a good "low-fantasy" adventure yarn.

(Of course, for fans of the aSoIaF series, there are lots of "clues" in this book, as it takes place 90 years before the GoT events begin.)

Movies out now edition...

The Martian.

Great! Kids loved it too. Matt Damon spends the movie monolog-ing, which would normally annoy me, but works well in this case, because he's making a recording of his lonely existence. Interesting sciency-spacy stuff too! Basically Castaway on Mars but funnier and a bit more nerve-wracking.

Green Inferno.

Yes. I saw it. What I liked best is the way Roth makes fun of (and humiliates) young, eager SJWs who want to save the world. The cannibalism angle was naturally gruesome. But somehow fun :P

Black Mass.

Normally love movies like this, but meh. Same old same old. Could have been about any gangster anytime anywhere. Depp looks creepy, but meh.

That QR code die seems rather impractical. The codes work, I checked 'em myself, but still.

I totally agree .. but a die is a die as far as I am concerned :) ... there are a lot of QR code dice out there ... for those with way too much time ... and a desire to use their tech

Up to season 3 in Full Metal Alchemist. Still very impressed, and some seriously bad ass enemies.

Can't say much that isn't a spoiler.

Sept 2015 progress log:

I spent the interim period between the last log and this one on the short story for the Strolenati epub and have done nothing else. This is probably going to be the status quo until I get it which is a date that I stop speculating/planning for.
